Data Broker (Legwork), Connection 5 (Public)

Common Pools: Ask Around 11, News 16, Matrix Search 18, Politics 13, Area Knowledge (Seattle) 13, Megacorps 13, Gangs 13, Organised Crime 13

Beautiful, cold, resourceful, these words come to mind when describing Oshin, one of Seattle's premiere data brokers. Her soft, elegant features hide a mind like a mousetrap, and more than one client has made the mistake of underestimating this young elf. For those that follow the strict code of conduct when contacting this Japanese beauty, a wealth of information as well as her deep connections in the information community wait just an exchange away. Just remember never to mention it in public…

GM Notes: Cold demeanour, uses few words, highly professional

Data Broker: If the GM asks you if you know a data broker, say yes. Unlike most Legwork contacts, OShin charges a chip for legwork for knowledge skills.

You Were Never Here: At Loyalty 3, for 7,000 nuyen times your current PA, Oshin can reduce your PA by 1.

Using Contacts
Action What the Contact Does Cost
Legwork (Knowledge Skills) Rolls their appropriate knowledge skill Free for legwork contacts; 1 chip otherwise.
Legwork (Asking Around) Extended Test: Connection + Charisma [Social + Connection]. You can substitute an appropriate knowledge skill for Charisma, at the GM's discretion 1 for legwork contacts; 2 chips otherwise.
Networking Connection + Etiquette + Charisma [Social + Connection]. The threshold is the target NPC's connection rating. Even on a success, you might only meet with a subordinate. Free for networking contacts; 2 chips otherwise.
Gear Negotiation + Charisma [Social + Connection] vs. Availability. Add Gear contacts' Connection to gear in their specialty. Free for gear contacts getting gear in their specialty; one chip otherwise.
Services Rolls their appropriate active skill or uses their special ability. If the contact can assume teamwork, it will be reflected in the contact's common pools (this is common for service contacts). 1 chip for service contacts; two chips otherwise. This gets you up to eight hours of safe work.
Favors Variable. All contacts can do favors, but a contact won't do you a favor whose rating exceeds their loyalty.
Rating Example
1 Minor. Deliver a message to someone. Provide access to a low-level restricted security area (airport boarding area, police station).
2 Low Risk. Loan use of specialized equipment (up to 5,000 nuyen in value). Corporate action requiring the signature of a first-line supervisor.
3 Medium. Provide access to a mid-level restricted security area (standard corporate research lab).
4 Moderate Risk. Loan use of specialized equipment (up to 50,000 nuyen in value). Corporate requisition requiring the signature of a middle manager.
5 Serious. Provide access to a high-level security area (FBI offices, AA megacorporate headquarters, AAA regional headquarters).
6 Major Risk. Loan of specialized equipment (up to 500,000¥ in value). Corporate requisition requiring the signature of a senior manager or junior executive.


Chips equal to the favor's rating.
